The sounds of the steel pans are ringing out around Didsbury High School, thanks to musician Byron Calame from One Education Music, who is providing weekly tuition to our students on the percussion instrument.

We currently have 35 students taking part in the lessons, with more set to join us once our eagerly awaited, hand-crafted steel pans arrive from Trinidad in the next few weeks.

One Education supports schools in a variety of ways including providing high-quality music lessons and it’s fantastic that we can offer steel pan lessons with Byron every Wednesday morning.

There is a full and varied music provision at Didsbury High, with many students learning an instrument and others involved in the wind band, string ensemble and vocal groups.

It’s wonderful to see so many of our students involved in music and joining in the steel pan lessons, developing their musicianship and enriching their education.
